We Didn’t Receive Any Coup Request To Overthrow Tinubu- DHQ

The Defence Headquarters has denied receiving a request to topple the democratic system of government in the country.

The military high command had on Friday frowned on comments requesting the Armed Forces to interfere in the democratic process of the country following allegations of poor welfare among troops across the services.

However, on Sunday the DHQ in a statement by the Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Tukur Gusau, said the military never received any request to take over government in the country.

It read, “The Defence Headquarters is concerned about false and disturbing social media reports twisted to state that the Armed Forces of Nigeria received a request to effect a change of leadership in the country.

“We want to use this opportunity to reiterate that the Armed Forces of Nigeria never received nor made such a declaration at any time to anyone or any group. We believe this statement came from those who do not wish the nation well. It is surely the wicked imagination of a few who are not happy with the progress and well-being of our dear country.

“The AFN is very comfortable with democracy and remains loyal to the President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria His Excellency President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The military is always willing and ready to defend the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He said the security operatives had launched a manhunt for those behind the report.

“We urge those peddling such falsehood to desist from such or face the law. The Military and indeed other security agencies are on the lookout for these agents of doom. We must all join hands to strengthen our democracy, “the statement added.
